During the community engagement process, I advised that I object to this decision as there are many factors already living in front of a busy school.
Firstly, parking and traffic plan is the main issue. Even if the drop off are staggered it is still a major inconvenience should another building be built as there will be more trucks and cars during the construction process. There is also an issue of parking spots. Currently staff and parents of the school are parking in front of our house and across our driveways making it impossible for us to park inside our own house. I've had to ask numerous people to move their car but due to the narrow road on Fraser St this is not possible. With St Patricks College wanting to increase their student numbers as well the road parking and traffic does not seem viable.

Secondly, there is mention of a underground parking facility. Where is it entering and exiting?

We bought our house due to the viewline from our first floor, however with a 4 storey science building being erected right in front of our home/viewline, it will cut the views and also reduce the value of home. This is raises issues of privacy. I already don't feel comfortable of a 3/4 storey building on one side on my home, but another building on another side raises additional issues on privacy.

In conclusion, I object to the erection of the building at St Patrick's College at Strathfield.

The environments around St Patrick college has become worst and worst in recent years. The college has been trying to expand in many areas, blocking roads and the only access path ways, creating a lot of inconvenience and headache for surrounding residents especially the elderly and young kids. The utmost frustration and dangerous situation is about traffic during drop off and pick up hours. St Patrick college does not attempt to solve the congestion issues where cars block all 3 intersections and roads around Shortland ave, Marion St, and Fraser St. Living next to the college, I have seen and heard on numerous occasions that drivers were too impatient to drive on the wrong side of the road, illegally stopping across intersections, recklessly overtaking others, and dangerously reverse into driveways and pathways to go around at peak hour when so many young students are walking on the pathway. Residents around the college are so fed up with this situation, and concerns had been raised with local council, but no actions had been taken to solve the issue by the college as well as the council. I am absolutely opposed to any further expanding or new building/facility at this college which is already over crowded and the environment is not sustainable. Please consider the environments and all the well being and safety of surrounding residents.

ST PATRICK’S COLLEGE SCIENCE AND LEARNING BUILDING
Application No. SSD-10400
I am making comments about the proposal which need to be addressed before the Application is approved.
I have not made any political donations in the past 2 years. I have made donations to St Patrick’s College while my xxxx were attending the College (xxxxxxx).
A. There are three issues which need to be addressed.
1. Enrolment growth - the latest trends in enrolments in Sydney Catholic Primary
schools shows there is a decline and that it is likely to continue. The Catholic population is declining significantly. This will surely impact the number of enrolments.
2. The optimum number of students in a school is critical to student and staff wellbeing. There is no evidence provided to show how a population of nearly 1800 students will lead to a better school.
3. St Patrick’s College is located in the middle of a residential area. It has limited space for student recreation during lunch breaks. It is considerably overcrowded. This will be exacerbated with the additional enrolments. It is well below NSW and Victorian Department guidelines.
These comments relate specifically to APPENDIX I.
1. 3.2 p12 The claim is that Edgar Street has unrestricted parking on either side. This is contrary to p 28 3.8 where it says it does have restricted parking. Cars park in the designated “kiss and ride” spaces from 2.30pm waiting for school dismissal. On two occasions our brick fence has required replacement as cars have driven into our driveway and accidentally damaged it.
2. 3.4 p17 It is noted that the only pedestrian crossing is in Frances Street. Students as well as locals have to be extra cautious trying to cross other streets on the College’s boundary. In the last year two students have accidentally been hit by a car. Additional pedestrian crossings are required.
3. 3.8 p20 It is suggested that the “kiss and ride” spaces in Edgar St are under- utilised. As indicated in point 1 they are used prior to the dismissal time. After this these spaces are out of sight from Fraser St so if anyone anticipates a space and finds there isn’t one they have to go around the block again. So I assume it’s not worth the risk.
4. Table 3.2 p25 indicates a delay of 10 seconds. I do not know how this is calculated. However I do know if I drive west in Shortland Ave at 3:15pm I will be locked in the traffic for at least ten minutes. IN FACT THE AVERAGE DELAY FOR CARS IN THE PM PEAK PERIOD SHOULD NOT BE AVERAGED OVER THE PERIOD OF 2:45pm to 3:45pm. UNLIKE MORNING PEAK WHEN CHILDREN ARRIVE EVEN EARLIER THAN 7:45am THEY CAN ARRIVE

ANYTIME UP TO 8:45am. IN THE PM PEAK CARS ARRIVE AND PARK IN THE KISS AND RIDE AREAS OFTEN BEFORE 2:30pm BUT THE MAJORITY ARRIVE FROM 3:15pm to 3:35pm. This certainly does not meet the SIDRA ACCEPTABLE STANDARDS.
5. Figure 3.12 does not indicate that there are queues in Marion Street.
6. 4.6 p33 indicates that there are no proposed changes for access for
pedestrians or cyclists. As a safety issue improved access is required.
7. 5.1.3 p35 refers to increased off street parking. Currently staff park in streets
rather than in off street spaces as (I’m told) “it’s easier” if there is a street space available. ADDITIONALLY contract staff DO NOT receive off street parking. For example, canteen staff park outside our house from before 6:30am and cleaning staff are usually parked there until 9:00pm.
8. 5.4 refers to cycling. It is not surprising that teachers do not currently cycle to school either because of traffic dangers or weather. It is an alternative that could be encouraged and assessed as viable now.
This comment relates specifically to APPENDIX T.
1. I refer to- “The disruption to College operations and the Edgar Street right-of- way during the construction phase that can be mitigated through effective communication and implementation of a Construction Management Plan.
indicates that these could potentially impact.
THE RIGHT OF WAY SHOULD BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES EVEN DURING CONSTRUCTION.
2. It is noted that the developments “may include community use of tennis courts and access to other suitable recreational facilities from time to time.” This is a return to the practice in the 1990s and it will be welcomed.
A final comment: There is no reason why some of the suggested improvements, such as the Green Travel Plan couldn’t be implemented now. There is no need to wait until 2030.

The current traffic on Fraser Street during morning drop off and afternoon pickup at St Patricks School makes it very difficult for my wife & I to enter our driveway at xxxxxxx . The proposed increase in traffic during construction and increased student population will further create traffic chaos in Fraser St. We hope the planning proposed will take into consideration traffic mangement in Fraser Street during construction and after the proposed project is completed
